was to the left of his opponent ted kennedy on the issue of gay rights in that election. despite that herculean ideological stretching, mr. romney lost the race badly to senator kennedy. it was not the culture war issues, the social issues that are credited with having made the difference in that election. the race didn't end up being much about health insurance or even whether or not mitt romney or ted kennedy were liberal or conservatives on abortion rights or gay rights or gun rights or anything like that. observers of the race say mitt romney lost that badly. look at that. he lost by 17 points to ted kennedy in that race more because of this issue. >> mitt romney's ads claim he created jobs, but what's the record? his firm bought a company and moved the headquarters to dallas. his firm bought a company called scm, fired all 350 workers. told some they could reapply at a 25% pay cut. many pregnant or older were denied jobs. and romney made $11 million in two years. mitt romney, he's misled us twice. with negative ads distorting senator kennedy's record and the phony claims about his own. >>
, trickle down economics and a millionaire's tax cut. whose side is he on? >> those are the ads ted kennedy used against mitt romney in 1994. specifically the folks from indiana, they had a whole series of ads like the ones for indiana, highlighting what mitt romney's bain capital did to the people who worked at the companies that romney and bain personally got rich off of. ted kennedy devastated mitt romney in 1994 in that senate race in those ads. so ted kennedy went back to the senate. mitt romney went back to bain. and he did a stint at the salt lake city olympics. when he decided he wanted to run again for public office, mr. romney man in 2002 for massachusetts governor. he ran against shannon o'brien. and shannon o'brien, no surprise, decided to run by upstating the same attacks that were so devastating against romney eight years earlier in the ted kennedy senate race. instead of the indiana paper mill that ted kennedy used in the ads against mr. romney in 1994, eight years later in 2002, shannon o'brien decided to use the gst steel mill experience against mr. romney. gfc still steel
of a fake write-in campaign for ted kennedy in new hampshire. ted kennedy was not running. he was not an announced declared candidate in the 1972 election. the president wanted to siphon off votes from ed muskie, senator muskie of maine who was considered to be the front-runner. so the president orders the set up of a fake write-in operation which the white house will pay for. >> there is something beyond the financial. >> should something be done to finance? >> why not. why not at least finance a little kennedy write-in. >> yeah. put this down. i would say a postcard mailing to all democrats in the new hampshire to write in for ted kennedy. the man you could elect. that's the way you get hit. >> so here you get a sense to the extent to which the white house was involved in illegal campaign activities. the fact that the hunt and liddy cuban emigre team that first makes its appearance on this timeline wall in 1971 has reappeared in the story of these illegal activities. well, that sets you up for the break-in and the consequence of the break-in. the hunt and liddy team get a $2
files. he comes back to it time and time again. and it's he that is insistent about getting ted kennedy's tax returns, about saying let's get my old secret service agent from when i was vice president, put him in ted kennedy's secret service detail, get him to report back and maybe we'll catch the son of a bitch in a compromising position and ruin him so he can't run in '76. that's what this was about. that's what's so brazen and horrifying. >> how important was deep throat? >> deep throat helped us a lot. he was confirming -- >> confirming is the word? >> basically. like the october story, it started out as carl had found three people who were recruited to do this sabotage and spying and none of them had done it. i went to meet with mark feld and it's one of the times where he said, no, this is much bigger. and that's when he said there are 50 who did this. and that's been a number that was disputed for a long time. all you have to do is read the senate watergate committee and their report. and it's astonishing. they had 22 people that the chief saboteur paid. they had spies named ruby

kennedy he told ted kennedy that he must release his tax returns because obviously he had something to hide. and if he wouldn't release his taxes, he must be hiding something and then of course, senator kennedy wouldn't release his. mitt romney would not release his as well. so i challenged him frankly because i felt that understanding his background at bain company -- his investment background but also because we had just completed a challenge the democratic party had just completed a challenge of his residency whether or not he actually was a resident of massachusetts. >> jennifer: i want to talk to you about that. >> still unanswered. >> jennifer: i want to talk to you about that in one second. let me finish on the tax return thing. >> sure. >> jennifer: obviously he didn't release his tax returns. what do you -- what do you surmise given your history with him and your in-depth knowledge of his finances and everything. what do you think he has to hide? do you think it is possible he wasn't even paying taxes?
of that caroline and ted kennedy gave him the profile and courage award for having pardoned richard nixon. you know there was a lot of deep resentment over that trip. chris: he was out secretly giving advice to ronald reagan in began's first race for the presidency. >> one of the thing that impresses me in mike's book in addition to the general brillian is what you see about ike. ike who's a master behind the scenes playing the role of the former president with these other political fillings. we all know that ike didn't like -- political figures. we all know that ike didn't like richard nixon. he advised ronald ra gay on how to deal with -- reagan on how to deal with criticism, some of the things that had been stirred up by the liberals in california. ike is responsible for launching ronald reagan's presidential career, according to the book, reagan goes to getiesburg right after reagan wins the governship in 1966. and in 1967, ronald reagan did make his first board of effort to get the republican nomination. so really ike was there at the launching of reagan's presidential campaign. chris: ike's a
ted kennedy in 1994 when romney charged that kennedy was hiding behind his blind trust. >> the blind trust is an age old ruse, if you will, which is to say you can tell the blind trust what it can and cannot do. you give the blind trust rules. >> second that romney was active in bain capital after he was effectively gone. the obama campaign is just trying to change the subject. >> the president's campaign has been, i think, outrageous in making the kind of charges they have. i think the kinds of attacks are beneath the dignity of the presidency. the president needs to rein in his campaign and talk about the real issues that the people care about. >> the third prong is to disqualifyify romney by using the refusal to release more tax returns as a way of saying that the romney campaign and romney is out of touch. romney says voters have seen all they need. >> we're putting out what is required plus more that is not required. those are the two years that people are going to have and that's all that is necessary for people to understand something about my finances. >> kathleen, anne romne
this before. ted kennedy had raised some of the same issues in the 1994 election. it worked for ted kennedy, but i think people were either giving him a pass or, you know, or what, i don't really know. but i don't think it was as effective, but i think now it's more effective for an audience, a national audience of people who really haven't seen that sort of set of values or hypocrisy, if you will. >> he seems to enjoy the formality of a debate, mitt. what do you think of telling the president you got to loosen this thing up a little bit. you got to be fast and loose in your debate style. if you get formal like him, very stiff like he does, he wins on that platform. >> the thing i've noticed, and i think, again, during my campaign and other places, i think he has a very tough time when he's unscripted. the times he's made most of his mistakes is when he goes off message and i think the more that president obama can actually have a conversation and get him to go off script and to engage him on a very personal level, i think that will, perhaps, benefit the president. >> i'm with you, complete

[ female announcer ] purina cat chow indoor. always there for you. >>> the who surprised everyone when he replaced ted kennedy in massachusetts wants to surprise everybody again. scott brown is a republican in a largely democratic state. he is running for his first full term against one of his state's democratic icons. here's dana bash. >> this is the senator from massachusetts, scott brown. >> reporter: main street in hyannis, cape cod with senator scott brown. the breezy, every man persona that got the massachusetts republican elected in an upset two years ago still on display. >> thank you. >> absolutely. thank you. >> keep your eyes on the road will you? >> reporter: brown is keenl aware that recapturing the senate seat held by democrat ted kennedy for nearly half a century means distancing himself fro
of extraordinary story . ted kennedy before his death reached out to david nassau, author of the atlantic biography of andrew carnegie among other things, and give him an extraordinary offer which was to say he gave an exclusive access to the kennedy family paper some of the papers of his father, joseph kennedy, which had never been shared with any biographers , and there were no strings attached. no family review. and david spent years on this book the to the archives, digging passed the myth and release starting from scratch. one of the things these papers allowed him to do, of course, is to get a kind of closer to the emotional core of joseph kennedy because of his letters were voluminous and had never been used. i think crucially david was, for the first time, really able to follow the money. the kennedy family fortune has always been a black box. dave was really able to put together exactly how justice kennedy did it. hollywood is a big part of the story in a way that is not exact to be understood before. we all know of wall street. we all know some of the myth, some even more true than we mig
to know more. joining me now is democratic strategist bob shrum who ran ted kennedy's campaign against romney in 1994. bob, let me start with you. senator reid said he didn't know if this claim about romney's taxes was true. what's your take on the fact he was willing to put this into play at all? >> well, let me put this in context. romney is returning from the worst foreign trip of any presidential candidate since his father went to vietnam and came home and said he had been brainwashed. as i wrote in my column in the daily beast today he must have been sitting in that stadium saying, oh, to be in ohio now that the olympics are here. well, he's going to be back in ohio and will face these questions. and i think harry reid went out there and said what a lot of us are thinking and some of us have already said if you have been in a presidential campaign, you want to release those returns. you sit down and you look at them and the only reason you wouldn't release them is if there's something profoundly embarrassing in there. i think this is going to dog romney all the way through the fal
was running against ted kennedy for senate, he was the one who made an issue of tax returns and said ted kennedy should be the one releasing more tax returns as well. nonetheless, this is not the issue he wants to be talking right now which is the very reason his campaign have a conference call with us earlier today attacking the president for this crony capitalism as we were talking about as well. >> do you have any indication from them, you were on that conference call with them, you have been talking to them, any indication they are going to change their mind because of some republican pressure as well, and release any more of the tax returns? >> it doesn't sound like it. doesn't sound like they will release any more tax returns and a lot of prominent conservatives have said if you're not going to do it, you have to not do it at all but if you do it, do it now and get it over with. the conversation you heard there is it will be done in a couple of days. the question they have to answer for themselves is whether or not they know it would be done in a couple days and what could be found
. if it's working for the other side, i've got to do it too. if it weren't for ted kennedy being a progressive in massachusetts, i've got to do that too! he is a me, too candidate. bill clinton was a success, i've got to be like bill clinton. this is a man without a rudder. he's got no compass. so whether or not he knows the fact, whether or not he has an ideological side to him is irrelevant, because he can be pushed any which way you like, and that's what conservatives, if you read between the lines, and sometimes they're saying it explicitly, that's what they like about him. all you've got to do is tell him it's the winning way and he'll print up your slogan. >> just for a comparison, i want to look at some video where we know he's actually telling the truth. this is from 1994 -- >> we had to go back to '94 to get a piece -- >> well, this is a piece where we know he's telling the truth and we can compare the way that guy talks about and the one pretending to be bill clinton. in 1994, he's talking about blind trusts. he's telling the truth. >> a blind trust is an age-old ruse,

was running against ted kennedy calling blind trusts an age-old ruse. his quote. shortly after the national review interview went online the publication put out an editorial that read this way. release the returns. saying in part, romney is a politician running for the highest office in the land, and his current posture is probably unsustainable. and that wasn't all. former presidential candidate rick perry chiming in on romney's tax situation. >> i'm a big believer that no matter who you or are what office you're running for, you should be as transparent as you can be with your tax returns, and other aspects of your life so that people have the appropriate ability to judge your background and what have you. >> and then this from congressman ron paul, who is still technically a republican presidential candidate. he told politico, quote, in the scheme of things, politically, you know, it looks like releasing tax returns is what the people want. that's from ron paul. for a candidate who appears boxed in to the corner, romney came out swinging yesterday, know, in pennsylvania, looking to seize
's right. and it worked for ted kennedy when mitt romney challenged him for the senate seat. >> eliot: that was a very different place. >> what works there doesn't work any place else. >> this is clearly romney's achilles' heel. you remember those ads that gingrich was running, they were extremely powerful. it looked like it was made by the afl/cio back in the 30s. they were devastating especially in the state of the economy and anybody could see this coming from a mile away. >> eliot: we're living in a couple of days where the focus has been healthcare and mitt romney is stuck with mcconnell and boehner on one side and barack obama and he said get me out of this miss. he's a smart guy. friday jobs come out. can president obama survive a sequence of months with sub 100,000 private sector jobs created. >> it looks bad and it will get worse. europe will drag the rest of us off that cliff if we're not careful, and maybe there's nothing we can do about it. it will get worse. the republicans have essentially nominateed a spectacularly weak candidate. the only argument he can give us is hey

endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die. >> the senator ted kennedy giving up his dream of running for president in 1980 after holding on until the last possible moment. in that speech, using his defeat to begin to create a new legacy. it's a classic example of making lemonade out of political lemons. and one state right now where the republican party has been given a bunch of lemons, they're not only making lemonade, they're refusing to acknowledge their lost and nobody is quite sure how to handle that. it's a weird situation, under the radar thus far, but i think it's about to blossom into a really big deal. we've got details ahead. i stepped on the machine, and it showed me the pressure points on my feet and exactly where i needed more support. then, i got my number. my tired, achy feet affected my whole life. until i found my number. i tried the free dr. scholl's foot mapping center. in two minutes, i got my foot map and custom number. i'm a 440. that matched up to the dr. scholl's custom fit orthotic inserts with the right support and cushioning i need. i am a
. that was his. he did it with ted kennedy. rick santorum was right then and is right now. there's no one else with the baggage than mitt romney on this issue. he wants to get this swept off the front pages as soon as possible. i don't think the campaign anticipated that there would be conservative blowback to his interview. they probably thought when he went out there that that would settle the matter and it would move on. worried about handling from the get go. they said he looks like a flip-flopper and shouldn't have gone there in the first place. it goes to show he's -- if you get him on script, if you're talking about the economy he's in a good place. if you're talking about anything else, he finds it very difficult to deal with the narrative. >> yeah. the god father, i suppose. he's marlon brando to i suppose barack obama's michael corleon. just don't be fredo. i can do things too. romney was asked if his massachusetts health care penalty was also a tax. here's what he said. >> actually the chief justice made it clear that at the state level, states have the power to put in place mandate
said about blind trusts when he was running for senate against ted kennedy. how about a no offshore accounts rule? but there's more to his answer to the national review about what he keeps money stashes in offshore accounts. he was not relying exclusively on the excuse he once dismissed as a ruse. the so-called offshore account in the cayman islands is established by a u.s. firm to allow foreign investors to invest in u.s. enterprises and not be suggest to taxes outside of their own jurisdiction. okay, so this account of his in the caymans is the good kind of thing. a good kind of offshore account because it's designed to help foreign people invest in the u.s. and avoid paying u.s. taxes when they do it. great. so why is his money there? come on, are you foreign? quote, sometimes a foreign entity is formed to allow foreign investors to invest in the united states, which may will be the case with the entities that democrats are describing as foreign accounts. so his answer to this is what? that he's a foreign investor in the united states? his own explanation is that this type of acc
